Someone claims a wallet can start with 2 on btc mainnet. How possible is dat. I knw 2 is the testnet pay 2 script wallet type. If its possible. How can it be generated?attached is an example of the wallet in question


Addresses starting with the character "2" are Pay to Script Hash addresses on Testnet. They are not valid addresses on Mainnet.

You can find a list of all Base58Check encoded address prefixes used in Bitcoin on the wiki.

  • OP's screenshot shows something that looks more like a UUID than a bitcoin address. Oct 29 at 19:24
  • Perhaps OP will enlighten us with some additional information what we're looking at.
